smoking fish by loish smoking fish by loish
drawing i made to put up on my own wall. i have a blue wall in my room and i spent ages looking for the perfect poster to put up, but nothing was really personal enough. i wanted an art nouveau poster but everyone has those by now... so i drew inspiration from this poster [link] to make my own version.

linework done with a mechanical pencil and scanned in; colored in photoshop 7 with a tablet. textures from [link] (mostly rust textures) and wallpaper pattern from a roll of wallpaper i have lying around haha. prints coming one of these days. for tips on how to apply textures check out [link]

and ignore the camera information haha. i drew the sketch on a photo of my wall to get an idea of what it would look like ( [link] ) and apparently the info is still in the file somewhere. it has like nothing to do with this picture though. :b

I love the concept-- the fish blend into the smoke so fluidly. Personally, I would have liked to see more of the smoke, since it took me a minute to realize they were coming from a cigarette. But you did this eight years ago, so it doesn't matter. I love how tight her curly ringlets are- they must have taken a while to shade.
My favorite part has to be the complementary color scheme (turquoise/red). It really completes the piece.  : )

Ha ha, I just started cultivating my own dreads, but I'll never look as cool as this babe! The easy smoke from the glowin' toke she's blowin' on materialising into the stuff of oceanic dreams, just like her hair and eyes she's a Piscean princess!

Oh, this is beautiful. Rust texture with a fish motif is unusual, but it really works.

Amazingly 3D. Looks like the fish are coming right out of the picture. I really like the smoke/water... looks like I could touch it.

I just got this print after wanting one for some time. For some reason I wasn't expecting a paper print - guess I ordered it without think about it too much - and was shocked at how gorgeous this print is when I unrolled it. The artwork and colors are stunning and the print does it justice by any means. Absolutely the best print I've ever seen.
